Set windows to show hidden files,
How to see hidden files in Windows
Then navigate to:
My Computer \ C: \ Windows \ system32

See if sndvol32 is located in there.
If not, open the dllcache folder, located in system32.
Locate sndvol32 in that folder.
Right click it, and select Copy.
Click the Back button.
On an empty spot in the system32 window, right click and select Paste.
Close the file.
Reboot your computer, and see if you have sound.

You're welcome, kingdan.
Doesn't matter how you did it, as long as you got it fixed. :thumbsup:
I posted that as a workaround, because some people don't have their Windows CD.
